    Default Factory Bluetooth Options...

    Can someone clarify the bluetooth options for me please?

    I was planning to get bluetooth as part of the exec pack but am not sure exactly what i'd be getting.

    I don't want some crappy parrot or Bury kit stuck on the dash, but i'm wondering if that's what you get with the standard BT. I know the embedded option is fully integrated but of course, double the price.

    Any ideas?

    With the standard bluetooth its still embedded to a degree, works through the radio & steering wheel controls, its not an aftermarket add on.

    2 options

    Bluetooth phone and Embedded Bluetooth phone

    Difference is that Embedded Bluetooth phone option works with something called the RSAP method. What's that you say?

    RSAP stands for Remote Sim Access Protocol, which allows the car phone to take over the mobile phone completely and use the SIM card in the phone over bluetooth, transferring all the phone functionality into the car. Its meant to save battery power on the phone as it allows the phone to turn into an energy saving state whilst it does this. It also allows you to see and type text msgs in the car, but weirdly only a max of 70 characters (so says the manual! can anyone else confirm as SMS is 144 characters long?)

    I've got std Bluetooth and a Nokia E72. It works perfectly, connects quickly, call quality is very good, it transfers the phone book from the phone to the car and allows me to browse it and even the voice recognition works pretty well too.

    Since only a few phones work reliably with this RSAP protocol, I would stick with the std one and save the cash for other goodies.

    Ahh thanks for the info! I just want to know I can transfer contacts and dial them from the car, i.e not have to use the phone at all.

    I've got a blackberry 9780 so I hope it will support everything. I'll stick with the standard as part of the Exec pack then!

    Whe you have a factory fit Bluetooth, when you have paired the phone, the contacts are sent to the car so they appear in the display. It will also show you your recent call list. You can then control it from either the head unit or the steering wheel. It also does voice dialing. Call quality is also very good.

    You can get these retro fitted and tech2ed for about £250 all in.

    I think the URL is www.diagnostics.org.UK. The chap lives just outside wolverhampton and does a first class job.

    Replaced my parrot with it and it's so much better being a concealed fit
